Re: Lewmar portholes leaking
Take some advice from my hatch process...
In my boat, it actually ended up being the gasket material under the attachment for the hatch hinge to the glass on the hatch itself. THis ended being a big drama as the gasket is not sold by itself...you have to order a whole new friction hinge. The reordered friction hinge assembly ($84!!) ended up having gasket material that didn't plug my gap. So, I ended up going to home depot and getting weather stripping material of the appropriate thickness and using an x-acto knife to cut it to shape...$8 including the cost of the x-acto knife. That and a few spare parts for a lewmar friction hinge....grrrr
BTW, did I mention my *EXTREME* dislike for all things Lewmar customer service related? They're awful. If it is gaskets around the perimeter of the hatch/port...I feel sorry for you. Each gasket is like $30-$50.
